Re: Stay in SPAIN or RETURN to Un-United Kingdom ?

BENIDORM, There are no "experts" as far as the exchange rate is concerned. I bought euros at "ICE" Waterloo at 1.1350 last Saturday. It suits the UK the exchange rate being poor. It is not too long ago since I got 1.40. I don't think things have improved much in Europe ( certainly not in Spain ) and...

Re: Nicola Sturgeon

I voted to remain.

I just wish they would crack on now and get out as soon as possible.

If there was another vote, I would be voting to leave.

The Scots would never leave the UK. They know which side their bread is buttered. Both sides actually, as far as the UK is concerned !

Re: Nicola Sturgeon

Surely you mean ginger nutter !

Scotland can't afford to be independent.

Would Spain say welcome an independent Scotland into the EU, with the Catalonia question in the background ?

The whole thing is nonsense.

Re: Employment numbers

Looking around when I was last out in November, nothing has seemed to change.

There were lots of able bodied young men hanging around, doing nothing as usual.

That is not going to change. This alas is the new norm.

The Euro is a disaster for countries like Spain.

Re: What is happening to the £

Believe we will settle to about 1.25 before long. After BREXIT, who knows ! Euro is doomed basically. The powers that be will keep trying to revive the corpse. Italian bank problems / Greece -Spanish unemployment will continue as long as the Euro is in existence. It may be that will be the new norm,...

Re: What is happening to the £

EEk...

Was going to buy some this morning for a break in mid November.

Less than 1.09, so will instead be raiding my euro bank account.

I like to top up a Caxton card for spending money, but not at these rates.

It may not improve, but that is a chance we all have to take.

Re: What is happening to the £

Seems there is a bit more scaremongering going on at the moment. People are buying, just in case Brexit actually happens, and we could be looking at 1.10 / 1.15 anyroads Just like it was a couple of years back with no Brexit to worry about. Was in town today, and saw 1.10 offered, and that was for ...

Re: I'm Off Down to the Bar ....

Always amazed at the range of "sin" beers in the larger supermarkets.

I always have some in stock ( even in the UK, but range limited ).

Impossible to drink more than one though. However, a good thirst quencher on a hot afternoon.

£3.65 in my local for the cheapest "ale", next one up is £3.85.
